About Deborah

While I was living in The Cottage (VRBO 384587) I noticed The Victorian three blocks away was in foreclosure. I love old houses! After seeing the monumental overhaul it needed, saying a few prayers, and talking to family and friends, I bought it...and was instantly overwhelmed!

First project: Put in a huge deck in back--the beautiful views kept me inspired during the long rehab. And now it's all finished and worth every bit of the TLC it required. Hopefully it blesses my guests as well!

Deborah purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This "Victorian" was everything it promised to be. It was very clean, well furnished and made for an enjoyable few days in Northern Kentucky. We had great weather and enjoyed sitting on the back deck and viewing the river traffic on the Ohio River. The town of Petersburg is a great place to walk and the people there are very friendly. We'd recommend this VRBO to anyone looking to get away or it is the perfect spot to see the Creation Museum or the "Ark Encounter".

Great Vacation Home for Large Family

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at the Victorian. Five families of our extended family stayed comfortably. Lots of sleeping area. Two laundry areas. Two well equipped kitchens. Very convenient. Older home, well maintained in calm little town. Playground and cafe in walking distance, and right on the Ohio River. Loved it.

Visiting The Victorian near the Creation Museum

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was exactly as described in the property description. It was clean and very attractively done on the inside to give you that Victorian feel without being uncomfortable. The kitchen is completely furnished. The location right beside the Ohio River was very nice. It allowed for boat and tug watching. Altogether a great place to vacation and for sitting on the deck in the evening -- well that cannot be beat. We even had a screened porch available for the one rain storm we had.

Also it was a very easy access to visit the Creation Museum. The Ark Encounter was only a 50 min. drive away and made for a great day excursion and return for a relaxing evening at home. We will always have many good memories of our stay at this vacation home.

Interesting old home well-stocked kitchen and clean. Love the porches!

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately it was raining, so we couldn't enjoy the out of doors. The Ohio River was beautiful with frequent barges.

The Victorian was a beautiful home with excellent accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

We had 15 people in our party and the home was more than adequate. The view of the river was wonderful. The home itself is beautiful. In truth the only criticism, and it's minor, is the neighborhood surrounding the home is far less pleasant. In short, we would highly recommend the Victorian.
